I took her to the vet earlier, her neck was getting really swollen. She has a lot of bite wounds. The vet shaved around each wound they found to clean them up. Most are superficial except for the one on her neck. Its pretty deep and has abscessed, which caused the swelling. Her lymph nodes in her neck were also swollen. She has a temp too. Poor little girl, she is really feeling horrible.
They gave me some antibiotics, pain meds, heartworm prevention, frontline and some de-wormer. She will probably be able to get her vaccinations next week if she is feeling better.
She finally ate some food, which seemed to perk her up a little. Her abscess is oozing, yay.
She is doing much better than this morning though. The pain meds really helped her a lot. She finally got to sleep.
She is a 6-7 week old Rott mix. She is just so young, I bet she misses her home. The theory is that either another dog or a coyote took her. That would explain the bite marks. My sister found her because she was screaming in the woods. So Im guessing my sister saved her from getting killed.
Here are some more pictures of her...
This is after the vet. You can see one shaved area on her side and her whole neck is shaved.
Isn't she just the cutest? The other dogs don't seem to mind her. She hasn't really done much but lay around and sleep though. Im still deciding on a name. Its hard when I don't know her real personality.
